A Creative, Integrated Mind Body Approach
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a short-term, goal oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on practical approach to problem solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that may contribute to life's difficulties, and change the way the client feels, thinks, and behaves.
I incorporate principles of mindfulness to help clients to become more self-aware of their feelings and emotions in order to help with self-regulation. Mindfulness helps to develop the ability to be more present and in the moment in order to re-pattern areas of life where one may feel stuck.
I use creative expressions such as art, bibliotherapy, sand trays, and play-based interventions to help individuals or groups who have experienced traumatic life events such abuse or neglect or loss of a loved one.
My approach to therapy reflects a variety of modalities and are tailored to your unique needs through the therapeutic process.
